This Week… Autumn Has Arrived in Houston (I Think)

 

Yesterday we awoke to temperatures in the upper 70s. We had the top down on our way to our morning walk. In a few short hours, the rains and front came through and the temperature had dropped to barely 60.

Saturday’s high may reach 70 but I doubt it. However, next Saturday we are expecting temperatures back in the mid-80s, which is why I can only say that I think autumn has arrived in Houston.

The thought of wearing something other than shorts and flip flops is actually kind of exciting to many Houstonians. The hardest thing for me is to get the stylist-in-my-head back into my cool weather wardrobe.

It’s fun seeing the leaves beginning to change colors but I’m not sure what our walks will look like in the dead of winter when most of the trees are leafless.

Your photos are so wonderful and definitely depict some majestic scenes!  I can definitely feel the temps going down in my neck of the woods.

I'm sure that Larry was kidding! Thank you for your quotes and thoughts. The trees here in Montana are still turning colors- not much has fallen yet. So it's b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l. Happy Autumn!

Kathy,

We are seeing some leaves turning, and the nights are colder than before, and the days grow shorter...all signs of autumn.  We had a high of 83 yesterday, and 77 expected for today, then it promises to cool down to 69, no complaints, I love it all.  We can always drive to the forest and get cooler temperatures of 38 in the movning and high 50's during the day.  Happy Saturday.  A

Happy Saturday, Kathy. We are both big fans of autumn weather ( for the most part, unless it's wet) and the colors. Everything is taking on that soft light that happens this time of year and it seems to make the golds, reds, and oranges glow.

Kathy I had to smile while reading this post as it's so what us Phoenicians go through this time of year.  I love the cooler temps - but not to chilly.  I see that next week early morning temps are in the 50's so that means time to get outside! Yea!  Enjoy our cool weather wardrobe.  I need to pull out a few as well!

Nice photos as always, Kathy.  The sun's shadows are longer here in Sacramento, and there is a slight crispness to the air that allows me to believe the color of our trees will soon change.  But, it looks like you are a head of us in Houston.

Grant Schneider we enjoyed the cooler temps this morning. Not sure if we'll say the same thing in January. 

Barbara Todaro what I remember is that it always rains in Houston on Halloween and February is when you want to take a trip out of town!

I agree Sheila Anderson what's hard is when the temps start out cool in the morning then warm up. Hard to decide what to wear. 

Wayne Martin good stay-inside weather!

Donald Urschalitz I remember observing all of the different state plates as more and more snow-birds arrived.

Michael Jacobs I'm laughing because today he put on his favorite warm-up pants and comfy top!!!  He looked very comfortable. 

Sharon Lee sounds like a good time to be in Arizona!

Hi Doug Dawes I love spring and fall the best. Really can't complain about summer. And..winter if I'm in Florida.

Brian England we should be back up in the 80s this week.   

Kat Palmiotti I'll bet it's gorgeous!!!! How about a pic??

Hi Ron and Alexandra Seigel Larry and I stood in our closets this morning before our walk trying to figure out what to wear. We're so used to grabbing shorts and t-shirts.

Thanks to you Roy Kelley I will. Hope you and Chef Dolores are enjoying your weekend. 

Hi Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD I don't remember much about the turning leaves here in Houston other than raking a lot of them!!! It was nothing like what we saw in Virginia.

Anna Banana Kruchten - Phoenix Homes Sales We're heading north soon for a short visit so we have to figure out what we have that we can wear. It's fun as long as it's not too cold and damp.

George Souto I thought about your Fall Progression today on our walk. If I had to do that I'd be lucky to get two photos!

Myrl Jeffcoat we noticed some brown leaves a few weeks ago but thought it might be from our extreme heat this summer. We don't have the majestic colors that other areas get. Thank you for the feature in your group!
